Default Help a brother out

I posted this in the tourney forum and no responses yet, so maybe I'll have better luck here.

$10 buy in home tourney 9 players.

Two very decent players to my left (first one LAG second one TAG)

ME ($19)
LAG to my left ($8)
TAG to my left +1($10)

Blinds: 1st level 0.25/0.50
I am UTG with Q [img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img] Q [img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img]
I raise to $3
LAG to my left pushes all in ($8)
TAG to my left +1 pushes all in ($10)
2 folds, 1 call , 2 folds
It's $7 dollars for me to call here into a pot that's $31.75
What do I do here?

I mean I wanted action, but not THIS much action!
I have to feel that the minimum hand I am up against here is AQs, right?

In writing this, I have answered my own question, but I would still like to know what you guys think.

I apologize for anything I may have left out for you to help me as I don't post hands often at all.

I would call in a heartbeat. If they have AQ you are way ahead, AK you are still ahead, the only hands you have to worry about are AA or KK. The pot size is 31.75 for which you are getting 4.5-1 to call. Now it is worrisome becasue you are up against to all ins but the price is right and you are often too far ahead to fold.

As I was writing the OP I realized that, but here is what transpired:

I FOLDED like a wierdo. I just felt that someone had AA or KK.

LAG to my left flips K [img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img]T [img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img](what the?)
TAG to my left +1 tables AK
MP caller has 7 [img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img] 7[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img]

I wasn't really kicking myself at the time because I guess I somehow knew the outcome bfore it happened.

The flop and turn were all blanks......the river was an Ace.

So I made a good, albeit lucky and stupid lay down. Looking at the odds I really should have called, but luckily the fates were with me. [img]/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

I completely agree with you now. Next time I won't lay this down in this situation. Luckily it worked out for me in this example.
